    That Iron Man one is kinda clever. The New Avengers one is just creepy and I would like it to go away now please.

    Rulkula is just… wrong. Wrong. WRONG!!!
    But the Iron Man one is haunting… chilly. It would make a wonderful what if, Iron Man the alcoholic as a bloodaholic. Maybe having gone through alcoholism he’s stronger than all the Marvel Vamps(Marvel Zombies crossover, anyone? Haha).
    But seriously. It’s a haunting picture. Always in the comics, Iron Man shows his humanity by taking his helmet off. To take it off… and see nothing there… that is just terrifying.

    Gosh, I’m seeing beautiful covers this week. Joe Q OMIT, then this.
    The New Avengers cover, however, just looks like a bad sitcom to me.

    I agree. It slightly confused me at first. My first thought when I saw the photo was ‘Headless horseman’. Then I realized it was a mirror.

    The vampire Iron Man could exist in the sunlight with his armor.

    I’ll echo Webmetz, I was a tad confused for a split second, but yeah that’s a great cover. I’m not big for ploys like that, but it’s pretty great.
